Word Up Community Bookshop/Librería Comunitaria
A Publishers Weekly Bookstore of the Year 2021 finalist, Word Up is a multilingual, general-interest community bookshop and arts space in Washington Heights, New York City, committed to preserving and building a neighborhood in which all residents help each other to live better informed and more expressive lives, using books as an instrument of reciprocal education and exchange, empowering not only themselves, but their community. We started as a pop-up shop in 2011 and stayed open due to an outpouring of community support.
